We can’t talk about diamond rings without discussing the setting!
When we talk about settings, we’re talking about everything that makes up the ring’s “style” — sans the actual diamond. Your SO might tell you they absolutely LOVE round cut diamonds, but it’s equally important to know –or at least have a hint—as to what kind of setting she likes. Knowing what setting your shopping for in advance will help you with your overall diamond purchasing decisions. Another reason the setting matters? In order to stick to your budget, you need to consider the price of the setting as well as the diamond. Features like metal type, extra stones, thickness of the band, etc. can all affect your overall ring budget, so take these tips into consideration before making the big purchase.
Let’s start with the classic and timeless solitaire settings. A solitaire setting allows the stone to be the main focal point because there are no fancy extras — there’s literally the stone and the metal band. Opt for a solitaire if you want the diamond to do all the talking. Simple, yet stunningly beautiful!
